If your wedding day is approaching fast, you may be wondering what small details you still need to wrap up. Incorporating animals into your big day can be an excellent way to include your furry friends and also add a special touch. In this blog, we’re going to go over some of the most practical ways that you can incorporate animals into your wedding day.

Including Animals

Including animals during your big day can make the day extra memorable and it can also make some amazing photos. Below are some creative and unique ideas that you can use if you’re considering ways you can include some animals during your wedding day.


One of the most obvious possibilities is to include your pets. Depending on the pet that you have, there may be multiple places that they could fit into your big day.


Some people love having their dog act as their ring bearer, while others prefer for the dog to stand with the wedding party during the ceremony. Either way, this can be a fun way to make sure that your pet is included and that they’re incorporated into your wedding day.


If you are going to have your dog at your wedding, consider hiring a dog sitter or asking a friend to be in charge of the dog’s care during the day. This can relieve some stress off of you and make sure that you can focus on other things that are important.


If you’re going to have animals in your wedding photos, then it’s very important that your photographer knows this beforehand. Taking photos with pets can be somewhat challenging, so it’s essential that your photographer is aware of the task ahead. They may even want to bring some special props, so make sure that you’re clear and upfront with your photographer about who exactly will be in your wedding photos.

Getting Ready

If you don’t want to have your pet as part of the ceremony, the time when you get ready may be the perfect opportunity to include them. They can even be in the pictures during this time and get some attention from your bridal party, so consider if your preparation time could be the chance to spend some time with them.


Choosing to include a pet while you’re getting ready can be a great way to make sure that they’re still included without having to worry about managing them during the ceremony. If you’re looking for a low-stress option, this could be the right one for you.
